SCOTCH EGGS, my people. Holy cow how I love me some scotch eggs. One of my absolute favorite make ahead things to put in the fridge on prep day and enjoy throughout the week. Eat them cold or warm, doesn’t matter. STINKIN’ good. Here’s how:
Boil 6 free range eggs how you like em. Drop them in a bowl of ice water to cool then peel. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 350.
Put 1lb ground pork into a bowl.
3/4 tsp Cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground Ginger
3/4 tsp All Spice
1/2 tsp ground Black Pepper
1/8 ground Nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground Cloves
1/2 Tbsp sea salt
1 Tbsp raw honey
Mix until combined, don’t over do it. (It’ll make the meat tough)
Now assemble each egg. Take about 1/3c of the seasoned pork and turn it out in your hand. Flatten it into a wide circle like you’re making a really thin burger. Put the peeled egg in the center. Carefully fold the meat upward, smoothing it as you go, until it covers the egg. This is not a perfect process so just go with it 😁
Place the scotch eggs on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper and make for 15-20 mins.
Btw-no color enhancement on that yolk you see there-that’s the TRUE color of a well raised hen’s egg. If yours doesn’t compare, keep shopping until it does! My fav has been @vitalfarms for a few years now.
